Montgomery not ruling out return for Broncos

Montgomery not ruling out return for Broncos

Ty Montgomery can’t say for certain that he’ll be ready for the Green Bay Packers’ post-bye game at Denver on Nov. 1, but the Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver isn’t ruling it out after getting relatively good news about the ankle injury he suffered during Sunday’s victory over San Diego.

Appearing on the Appleton Post-Crescent’s Clubhouse Live show with left tackle David Bakhtiari, Montgomery said x-rays did not show any broken bones in his left ankle and instead just a simple sprain.

“It’s just a sprain. X-rays were negative,” Montgomery said on the show. “[I’m] not ruling anything out. Staying prayerful and positive and just praying for the best. … No promises, but not ruling anything out.”

With Jordy Nelson already out for the year with the right knee injury he suffered in preseason, and Davante Adams missing his third straight game with a sprained left ankle of his own, the Packers were down to Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jeff Janis as their top three receivers after Montgomery departed during the first half Sunday.

“[I] talked to him [Sunday] night,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “I think he’s feeling a little better than obviously he was when they took him off the field.”

Montgomery enters the bye week with 15 receptions for 136 yards and two touchdowns.
